5 stars for historic value alone!

Subject: Too many white people
This movie has too many white characters who aren't funny.

One thing I notice is that the "blackface" Gosden and Correll are doing isn't what the vaudevillians like Al Jolson were doing, with impossibly big white lips.

They seem to be actually trying to appear as black people rather than as the standard caricature. Not that that saves it.

They are, however, talented. As radio performers they practically invented what we know today as situation comedy. We get a slight taste of it here, but I'd recommend the actual radio shows instead.

Subject: I love this movie---
That's right, I love this movie. It has a pretty good story albeit predictable as all get out. The phone scene is hilarious as is Amos and Andy driving across town. As for what I DIDN'T like about this movie, I must say that the camera work was lack luster. I do give this film a very high mark because of one scene in which Freeman Gosden ('Amos') learns of his old friend down in Georgia's passing....great acting.
Just a quick note, Amos and Andy were the most popular radio program from 1928 through the 1954. It also ran as a TV series from 1951 through 1953, by then though an actual black cast performed on the program.

Subject: Rare film glimpse of Amos & Andy
...thought this was hysterical at parts, especially the phone sequence. The haunted house stuff is bland. The duo does have chemistry but for those with sensitive humor buds, especially early black face humor done by white men...STAY AWAY!!!

Subject: Wonderful!
If you are a fan of Amos 'n Andy's radio show, this is a chance to see the perfect visual representation of the characters. The blackface routine is done in a very tasteful and non offensive manner, and the story follows the typical Amos 'n Andy style. Watch it if you are a fan of good humor.

Subject: Weak
This movie's storyline is exceptionally bad.
Amos n' Andy...I don't quite know what to say about these two. I can't deny that they have a little chemistry, but they definitely had to offend many people with their comedy back then (and probably today as well). The supporting actors do an almost decent job.
The man that played Amos (Freeman Gosden) said that this movie was the worst movie ever made. I guess this is a good one to see if you want to view a example of historic blackface comedy.
